  • Deborah Orr of The Guardian newspaper:  “Loved it!”
  • Jane Collins of Bella magazine:  “Thought the film was great – classy, visually gorgeous, and brilliant cast.”
  • Lucy Pavia of In Style magazine:  “Beautifully done and very faithful to the book – also, Holliday Grainger was excellent, a brilliantly icy Estella.”
  • Kate Taylor of Now magazine:  “A stunning version.  It really brought the story alive and was epic to look at.”
  • Wendy Rigg of Reveal magazine:  “Beautifully filmed and gripping.  Brilliant performances.”
